We’ve been taking sartorial hints from the boys for as long as we can remember — think brogues, fedoras, and structured blazers. But, there’s one menswear-inspired trend that seems to pop up faithfully every spring: vests.
You could add some pizzazz to a plain ol’ tee by adding a bib necklace, but why not toughen it up (and add a layer — it’s not summer yet!) with a moto vest? And that breezy spring dress is just one sleeveless waistcoat away from being work- and play-appropriate. Ahead, you’ll find the most versatile vests that you can let peek out from under your spring jacket now, or pair with your go-to jumper when the summer heat finally kicks in.
